Pretty soon thousands of home sellers will be breaking the news: “I’m filing for Divorce.” Divorce and Real Estate : An Unfortunate Combination : Part 1

Pretty soon thousands of home sellers will be breaking the news:

“I’m filing for Divorce.” I am re-posting a blog 3 Part Blog I wrote on Real Estate and Divorce.

Selling a home can be a harrowing experience even for married couples who consider their marriage to be a stable one. However, while a marriage may dissolve of its own accord, any property involved often requires skilled and experienced professionals to assist the family members in the equitable distribution of the estate.  Particularly, the primary residence.

Even seasoned realtors find themselves on unfamiliar ground when working with divorcing clients.  Despite their acquired experience and best judgement, they still encounter unexpected pitfalls and obstacles throughout the process often resulting in catastrophic consequences for one or both of the spouses.  It’s during these times which are usually fraught with emotional and financial turmoil that a knowledgeable and experienced realtor can guide a family to what is often the best result for all: selling the primary residence.

During my 15 years as a realtor, I’ve assisted many divorcing families with their real estate needs. As a result, I believe there is an even more essential skillset for a realtor to possess than experience to better suit divorcing couples: the ability to be impartial but still remain compassionate to their clients’ respective needs.  In short, the ability to act as a sort of mediator between not only the spouses but their attorneys as well.  In order to gain the trust of what is often two hostile parties, the realtor must not display any bias during spousal conflict. This requires that both spouses be treated equally and respectfully in order to achieve the ultimate goal of selling the home and setting the parties up for a quicker financial rebound.

Divorce, more often than not, is an extremely disruptive event.  Choosing a realtor with relevant experience and a proven record of representing both parties fairly is simply critical to getting to a resolution sooner.
